Solutions to Common Issues

 

Create a Folder Hierarchy and Upload Files

Create a folder structure in the web interface by using the New > Folder option. You may upload files and folders from the web interface or copy files from Google Drive

Import and Manage Users and Groups

Learn about the different options to add user and groups. When adding users from your Google Apps domain, ensure that they are added as SSO users with their Google Apps email addresses. Users from your Google Apps domain should be added as Power Users or Administrators. You may also add users outside your Google Apps domain as SSO users if their email is linked to a Google account (e.g. A gmail.com address).

If your organization uses AD/LDAP to store user and group information, you may use Egnyte's AD Extraction Kit to synchronize user and group information. You may also add users from your Google Apps domain by searching their name or email and assigning permissions in the folder permissions window.
 

Assign Permissions

You can learn how to assign permissions to a folder and how to determine what folder level access to assign to your users here. You may add users from your Google Apps domain to Egnyte by assigning them permissions to any folder. This can easily be done by searching for their name or email address in the Folder Permissions menu. Folder permissions will extend to Google Docs in the folder so users never have to worry about sharing with the right people.
 

Configure Settings

Configure settings for your Egnyte domain by selecting the menu icon on the top right of the web interface and clicking Settings. As a first step, ensure that you have explored the different options you have to increase the amount of Google Drive storage that is available to Egnyte.
